    OMG!!! We have sod... and I have some bare soil!!!

    What should I plant???? I know I need to turn the dirt and add some good bags of soil as well. But in mid July with the weather in the 90's... hot and humid... and our city very below the normal rain average, what can I plant. In the south... Any ideas? There is a fence behind the bed. I think it gets morning sun and evening sun, probably 6-8 hours.

    You should plant some tomatoes and summer squash ASAP and should have plenty of time to harvest. Flowers . . . . Umm . . . . I'll wait to see what the flower experts have to say!

    Tomatoes were my first thought, too. LOL. What did you have at your other house that grew well and that you liked?

    We had lots of tender sweet cucumbers, watery tomatoes (too much rain here), some hard okra, and a few beans, plus tons of herbs (fennel, basil, oregano, dill), and a beautiful butterfly garden. I actually checked the other day and I think the 6 hours of sun is in the afternoon. Does that make a difference?

    6 hours of sun should let you plant any kind of sun-loving veggie such as tomatoes, squash, eggplant, and that kind of thing. Do you think you will get something in?

    Gosh I can't plant anything now. The water pressure in the city is so low... particularly our neighborhood... they are working on some pipes nearby. The kitchen sink has a trickle... can't rinse the dishes.... they go straight to the dishwasher. Pressure is ok in other spots but the pipes are old and we have leaks. I am not planting anything yet. We have been having alot of rain though which is good. Welll not so good when there are roof leaks too!!!
